Kid’s Gift Guide

Happy Holidays y’all! I know kids can seem to want anything and EVERYTHING they see in stores or in catalogs or on tv because I know mine does. I have been trying to be more intentional with everything we buy especially with toys. I really want toys that are going to last, that add educational value, that keep Christopher active and of course that are fun. I made this gift guide based on items we currently have, want or are planning to purchase. I linked all of them items below so I hope you enjoy! Read more

3 Easy Halloween Snacks

As I’ve mentioned before I love all things Halloween and Christopher does as well. Since he could eat solid food, I’ve always enjoyed making him fun, mostly healthy, treats and meals. My favorites are holiday themed, and over the years I’ve had family, friends, and even strangers tell me how much they look forward to seeing what I’m going to make. So I put together a few of my go to treats that you can make in a pinch!  Read more

We BOO-ED Our Neighbors!

Hello everyone! Are you enjoying this amazing month and beginning of the holiday season as much as I am?? I looooooove October and fall and Halloween! Have I mentioned that before? Today I’m going to be posting a fun, little neighborhood tradition that we do called “You’ve Been BOO-ED”! Basically someone starts off by making two little treats to hand out to two neighbors and they will do the same and then the domino affect will take place. I’m gonna show you how I did ours this year and I have cute printables that you can use to boo your neighbors as well!  Read more

Halloween Pajamas

Halloween is my favorite holiday so we really go all out. From decorating, to our annual party, watching 13 (now 31) nights of Halloween, dressing up, and especially getting new pajamas and socks. I have a bit of a pajama problem not just for myself but for Christopher as well. I try to get Johnathan on my wagon but he’s not quite there yet. In my true form I started scoping out Halloween pajamas and rounded up a few of my favorites!  Read more

Mexican Bread Pudding Recipe

The other morning it was rainy and gloomy so I had no intention of getting us out of the house. I had a French loaf left over that I needed to do something with or it would’ve gone bad. And lets face it we cannot let  perfectly good bread go to waste! I had been wanting some sort of warm, comfort food/dessert so I thought about making bread pudding. A couple of nights before Bub and I had some hot chocolate. Mexican hot chocolate of course, not to knock Nestle or anything but if you’ve had Mexican hot chocolate you’ll never go back. The wonderful flavors were still on my mind so I thought id try something new. And that is how this yummy, warm, gooey yet crispy, bread pudding came about. I cannot wait to make and enjoy this in the fall/winter time, curled up on the couch watching holiday movies or around the table with family and friends. Read more

For this week’s topic ill be talking about how summertime and my inner struggles have pushed blogging to the back burner. Read more

Picnic Must-Haves

Hello there! In my previous post I talked about polls I had in my instagram stories about what you’d like to see for blog posts and my picnic must haves was one of the winners! We usually have picnics at our local library park or by the creek and both of them have a playground for my kiddo. When you’re going on a picnic with your kid(s) I think most mom’s first thought is “What ALL do I need?!”. I used to over pack, under pack, or just wing it. Sometimes it worked, most times it didn’t. But after many picnics and trips to the park I think I’ve perfected what works best for me so I hope that it helps you too!

Summertime Schedule

Hello there! Sorry I’ve been so MIA, we have had a lot going on and life just gets in the way sometimes. I did a couple of polls on what you would like to see and I got some good feedback! I am a firm believer that children thrive off of consistency and structure so I try my best to give Christopher that as much as I can. Now while this is a schedule for us, it can also be used as more of a base guideline if you’d like. We obviously don’t stick exactly to every single minute because of wake up/bedtimes, and activities all can get tweaked depending on many different factors but I like to try and follow it best to my abilities. Here it is! I hope it helps! Read more
